Dark Beers To Get You Through Winter

We've got two new dark beers being released this week to help you through the last of winter.

Look for cans and kegs of Drew's Day Off and Memphis As Truck in our taproom and wherever good beer is sold around town. While we've had these on draft before, this is the first time we've put them in cans.

Drew's Day Off is an oatmeal stout our brewers made while Drew was out of town and left a fermenter tank free.

This silky-smooth ale is everything you ever wanted in a stout. A heavy body wraps you up for the colder months, while hints of chocolate and dried cherries put a smile on your face.

This week also marks the return of Memphis As Truck, our love child with French Truck Coffee.

This beer combines the best two beverages in the world: coffee and beer.

We used French Truck's  Kossa Geshe coffee. They turned these Ethiopian beans into a cold brew that was blended into our stout of oatmeal with chocolate and roasted malts.

While most of these beers will be in cans, there will be a few kegs around town. One of them will be Downtown at Momma’s Roadhouse on Feb. 3. They are hosting a Memphis As Truck keg tapping party with beer specials and giveaways.

 

Here Comes the Judge...and Plaid ATTACK!!!

With winter and cold weather firmly here, we've decided to help make everyone's day a little brighter with the release of two favorites, the Judge and Plaid ATTACK!!!, this week.

Look for these two darker ales on tap and in cans around Shelby County and North Mississippi, wherever good beer is sold, well into January.

This is our first time canning these beers.

In case you need a reminder, the Judge is our chocolate-vanilla porter made with Madagascar vanilla. This very judicious offering balances roasty malt notes with hints of vanilla and cocoa. It has a solid body and holds a great head at 6 percent ABV.

Plaid ATTACK!!! is another beer that will help fight winter's chill. This Scottish ale clocks in at 6.2 percent ABV. Its solid malt backbone comes from Marris Otter, crystal, chocolate and a dash of smoked cherry wood malts. It's balanced with a variety of UK classic hops to create a smooth drinking experience.

 

Huggy Bear is Back!

In a strange turn of events, a Huggy Bear has come out of hiberation just before winter to help get you through the oncoming cold weather.

This honey brown ale tastes like the warm embrace of a grizzly bear without all the sharp claws and the biting.

Honey malt and darker roasted malts give it a sweet, malty backbone and a nice chocolate finish.

This is a brown that comes in at 5 percent ABV so you can enjoy quite a few before knocking over trash cans and mauling hikers. 

Look for it on draft and in six packs at our taproom and where good beer is sold in Shelby County.

Alt-Radio Available in October

We’re helping celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Ronald McDonald House Radiothon on 98.1 the Max with a new beer.

We’ve just released Alt-Radio, an Altbier brewed with spices, and it will be available throughout the month of October just for this event.

We are partnering with AJAX Distributing to support the Ronald McDonald House directly, donating part of every case sold to the charity, which offers children with pediatric cancer and other catastrophic illnesses undergoing treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their families a nurturing, family-centered residential community.

This promotion will also bring awareness to the Radiothon, which will air Oct. 30 on 98.1 the Max.

Stop by our newly-reopened taproom or your friendly neighborhood beer retailer to try this tasty brew while supporting a good cause.

 

And We're Back!... Again!

Phew! It seems like it's been ages since people have come to the tap room for a pint! We're so excited to be able to allow people back! We've even created a new shaded outside seating area for a more spacious and safe time!

 

For now the tap room will be open for on site consumption, togo beer, six pack pick up and growler fills:

Wednesday 4-7PM

Thursday 4-7PM

Friday 4-10PM

Saturday 1-10PM

Sunday 1-7PM

 

 

 

Still have a few ground rules we have to stick to in order to promote safety:

  • You must be wearing a mask anytime you are not seated at your table (ordering a beer, going to the bathroom etc.)
  • No one under the age of 21. This includes children. 
  • No parties larger than six (6) people
  • No moving the tables. We've spaced them safely. 
  • No bar seating.
  • Please remain seated when at all possible. 

Other ways we are working to keep you safe include all the staff wearing a mask at all times. Also, we’ll be serving beer in compostable cups and we will have recycle bins set up so you can just toss it in there when your beer is done. We will also be cleaning/sanitizing all tables after each group and the bar top regularly.

 

Thank you so much for your support over the last few months, and we can't wait to see you!
